Have you ever thought about how it would have been if Jefferson Davis had appared on YouTube? The other day on YouTube they videoed a choir singing the Hallelujah Chorus in a mall food court somewhere. That was amazing.
How much more amazing if they had had the internet in 1861-1865. Think how different everything would have been. The politicos would have probably been able to work out their differences over a beer or something in the President’s rose garden at the White House, so there might not have been a war at all. And in the mall (caught on YouTube of course) a rowdy group of Southerners might have been photographed as they sang Dixie and maybe The Bonnie Blue Flag.
Jefferson Davis might even have sold some memoribilia for “The Cause” on ebay. Ah well, unfortunately they did not have these methods of communication that we have today, not even the telephone, just the telegram and the “tell-a-woman”. That method never has failed us yet!!!
I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas and that you will have a Happy New Year. Be sure and tell others to read our blog so we can keep you informed about the work at the First White House of the Confederacy here in Montgomery, Alabama! Ah, maybe the First White House will appear on YouTube some time. We can always hope that the singers may want to come here instead of the food court!
